How did I miss Jim White?


I was catching up to some backlogged podcasts from All Songs Considered and randomly cued up a Tiny Desk Live Concert (what great idea by Bob Boylan!) featuring Jim White of the Southern Gothic Folk school.

Brilliant storytelling in his songs. Here's a link to Jim's MySpace page where you can listen to and read up on him. The video clips on the site are wonderful, as well.

If you're a fan of Southern Gothic and/or Southern Grotesque or even Southern Cheesy Grits, check him out. Fair warning, though. This ain't no Barry Manilow.
